Internet & Networking Lightspark, the project that aims to create an LLVM-based Free Flash payer, has reached beta status. "JIT compilation of ActionScript to native x86 bytecode using LLVM; hardware accelerated rendering using OpenGL Shaders (GLSL); very good and robust support for current-generation ActionScript 3; a new, clean codebase exploiting multithreading and optimized for modern hardware. Designed from scratch after the official Flash documentation was released."

Yes, yes it is. There isn't anything that flash can do that cannot be done in HTML 5, to my knowledge. Steve Jobs seems to agree.

In a theoretical sense maybe, but not without massive pains. So in a practical sense, HTML 5 is in now way a replacement for Flash.

I'm not sure why you would want to quote Steve Jobs. He's just a salesman who's never programmed and doesn't know anything about hardware.
